6:01pm
row. but some risked it anyway. >> it's crazy. >> one man was even arrested for skinny dipping with hurricane earl. there was no -- there there were no serious rescues at all during the hurricane. and it was almost like a tourist attraction, drawing people to the beach to see waves they've never seen like this in their lifetime. >> the waves are absolutely beautiful. >> reporter: the mayor says hurricane earl could have damaged beach front businesses, if not for a million dollars spent every year on beach front projects. they keep the dunes high and the water where it belongs. >> there were a lot of properties on the ocean front that were vulnerable. and now they have a natural buffer. and it made a difference. >> reporter: by the afternoon, it was tourists, not water, flooding back to the boardwalk. and another positive change here in ocean city. less than an hour ago, the

hurricane warning out for cape cod. may see tropical storm force winds later tonight. for us, out west, it's going to bring us a big change. a nice weather pattern shaping up for the weekend. let's take a look at the last track we had coming in for earl. still a category 1 storm. doesn't look like those winds will impact cape cod. but they could see some tropical storm force winds, as the system continues to evolve. it will weaken as it moves up toward eastern canada, running toward the very cold waters up there. yeah, that's where the waters are. temperatures in the water, only in the upper to low 50s. clouds moving out across the region. and looks like a great setup for the weekend. tim in the outback, with a look at the current advisories for the weekend. >> a picture says a thousand words. and you saw in adam may's picture, how the waves are really crashing into the beach there in ocean city. that is the reason now that we have a coastal flood statement. basically, a special weather
6:04pm
statement is what is in effect for the beaches, basically from ocean city and worcester county, right on down into akimack county. that's the green strip right there. they've even lifted that watch and advisory for the delaware beaches. so it's basically a concern that the surf, the rip currents, and the tides are going to be very high, down along the coast. so you'll need to take heed. what you're seeing there is the double-digit winds have calmed down. 13-mile-per-hour sustained winds. high winds out in the cumberland valley are the result of a front moving through. they could be generating winds stronger than what earl did on the coastline. gusts on the shore are around 20 miles per hour in cumberland. around 28. again, that front is pushing through. it's the same front that is going to help continue to move earl into the northeast. bob will have the complete updated first warning forecast. before the storm reached maryland. hurricane earl brought gusty winds to north carolina's coast.
